Bellisana 22/08/2019 0
This spell will help you banish any negative energies you might come across. You don’t have to use a spell this complex, but you can see how it’s set up.  Of course, regular smudging helps, but sometimes you just need that extra energy that a spell can give you. At this point, consider whether you want to eliminate a negative situation, or if you think someone intentionally, or unintentionally, wants to hurt you.You will need:Two white candlesOne each black, orange, white candlesSage, either oil or loose herbAthame/BolineBowl/cauldronSet up your circle and your altar.
